In a stunning warning, billionaire and investor Mark Cuban expressed grave concerns about the potential impact of Biden’s policy on crypto. According to him, the outgoing president’s stance on this hot issue could well cost him a second term. As the crucial 2024 elections approach, Cuban predicts that former President Donald Trump could skillfully leverage this to retake the White House.

Biden facing the Gensler dilemma  

At the heart of Cuban’s concerns stands the now-controversial figure of Gary Gensler, the chairman of the SEC. He is known for his strict regulation of the crypto industry. The billionaire believes that keeping Gensler in this key position risks alienating a significant portion of the electorate favorable to digital assets. Biden faces a tough choice: to court these crypto voters or to support the hardline stance advocated by his own regulator.

Trump: the unexpected crypto pioneer?

Ironically, it is his former rival Trump who could come out on top according to Cuban’s analysis. Although openly doubting the former president’s real knowledge about crypto, the billionaire nonetheless highlights his skill in capitalizing on this theme during the campaign. A significant asset that, according to Cuban’s predictions, could sway a key part of the crypto electorate to the former president’s side.

Adding another layer of complexity to the crypto issue, the FIT21 Act (Financial Innovation and Technology for the 21st Century Act) aimed at framing the regulation of crypto-assets has deeply divided the camps. Gary Gensler vehemently opposed it, calling it a source of risks for investors. However, its adoption by the House of Representatives has created real confusion about the future of crypto regulation in the United States, a significant issue for concerned voters.

Cuban’s warning resonates like a wake-up call for Biden. Without a fair balance between crypto regulation and the expectations of voters favorable to digital assets, he could pave the way for an unexpected return of Trump. In this saga, crypto promises to be one of the central issues, capable of reshuffling the cards of the American electoral game.
